Pope Francis: “I’ve Saved Medjugorje!”

Email from a reader this morning….

CDF does its job and says Medjugorje is false, and according to this report Pope Francis over-ruled that and ‘saved’ Medjugorje. Sadly, it has a ring of truth about it. 

Ed: if you agree that the following report “has a ring of truth about it”  tell us! 

From Gloria TV

Chiara Amirante, founder of the Roman aid organization Nuovi Orizzonti, told a crowd on November 1 during a visit in Medjugorie that she recently talked one hour with Pope Francis about the alleged Bosnian place of apparitions, and that she had “the blessing of the Pope” to speak about what was said. According to Amirante Francis told her:

“Chiara, look, it’s I who saved Medjugorje because the Commission of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, had already said, based on many news also false ones that Medjugorje is all false. So it’s I who then saved Medjugorje, it’s I who sent [Archbishop] Hoser because I believe – what I also said in the press conference [on the flight from Fatima to Rome in May 2017] – that the fruits are many and unequivocal.

You can say that I have Medjugorje at heart, and that I did not realise that that statement [about Our Lady who speak too much in Medjugorie] which I said as a personal opinion but which also was based in a wrong information, did have such an strong impact.

So you can say that I have Medjugorje at heart, very at heart and that I am moving ahead with my delegate Hoser, precisely to preserve everything that is beautiful in Medjugorje.”  Source

Broadcasting Media putting brakes on BREXIT: UK Likely to Remain Prisoner of the EU – Pray Urgently! 

Editor writes…

It’s now very clear today, with news of the latest Sky Data poll apparently showing a dramatic change in the public mood with more people changing their minds about leaving, and thinking we ought to stay in the EU, that my own personal prophesy, when the referendum was announced in 2016, is apparently coming true:  we will never be permitted to leave the EU.  The EU will see to it that we remain imprisoned in their diabolical project. Bit by bit, the media – especially the broadcasting media – have been building up their case for remaining; leading questions, ill-informed discussions, second-rate and manifestly biased commentators creating a picture of devastation outside the EU.  And, it must be said, the Leave side has been weak in its response – when, that is, they are permitted to respond.   So, what, if anything, can be done about it? 

Blogger, Westminster Fly, replies…

The EU is a spiritual problem – being freemasonic and satanic in origin, For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.”

So I think we’ve got to go all out about this – have Masses said, rosaries, novenas, and penance, that we may completely leave the EU and that it may be destroyed completely.

The battle won’t be won by clueless politicians like Theresa May, that’s for sure. Humanly speaking, I think our best bet is if they get rid of her, and Boris Johnson gets in and gets Jacob Rees Mogg in the cabinet, then we stand a chance. Both are far from perfect, but they are light years ahead of Theresa May.

Apparently, since May gave out her Chequers statement, UKIP membership has gone through the roof again. Farage is talking about coming back. God uses all these imperfect instruments, but I still think the best way for a clean break with the EU is an intensive Mass/prayer/penance campaign.

Also, it may be one of these things that isn’t resolved until the Consecration of Russia. But the signs are there. EU apparatchiks are getting worried about ‘right-wing populism’ (i.e. patriotism and common sense) resurfacing in various countries. Things are on the move… so the remedy must be spiritual.  

Comments invited – share your thoughts on this Sky Data Poll – is it contrived, or fake news?  Share, too, your suggestions about prayers and penances as we reflect on Westminster Fly’s contention that the BREXIT remedy must be spiritual.   

13 May: Feast of Our Lady of Fatima!

“The Message of Fatima
imposes an obligation on the Church”.… Pope John Paul II

FAQ…  from the Fatima Center website

1. What is a “consecration”?

A: It is a ceremony by which a person, group of persons, or thing is set apart as sacred and dedicated to the service of God or another sacred purpose.

2. What is meant by “the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary”?
A: At Fatima, on July 13, 1917, Our Lady told Sister Lucy that “God is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the Communions of reparation and for the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart … In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, which will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

Our Lady’s request is very simple: Russia—the fount of so much evil in the 20th Century—must be set apart and made sacred by its consecration to the Mother of God.

3. Why is it necessary to consecrate Russia in particular?
A: Because God wills it. As Our Lady told Sister Lucy at Fatima: “Russia will be the instrument of chastisement chosen by Heaven to punish the whole world if we do not beforehand obtain the conversion of that poor nation …”

And as Sister Lucy disclosed in her published memoirs and letters, Our Lord Himself confided to her that He would not convert Russia unless the consecration were done, “Because I want My whole Church to recognize that consecration as a triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, so that it may extend its cult later on, and put the devotion to this Immaculate Heart beside the devotion to My Sacred Heart.”

Sister Lucy has explained that because Russia is a well-defined territory, the conversion of Russia after its consecration to the Immaculate Heart would be undeniable proof that the conversion resulted from the consecration and nothing else. The establishment in the world of devotion to the Immaculate Heart would thus be confirmed by God Himself in the most dramatic manner.  Read rest of the Frequently Asked Questions about the Consecration of Russia here

Consecrate Russia Now! Contact Pope Francis – Urgent Action Required! 

Updated | Claiming that some Americans are preparing for a coming war with Moscow, Russian state-owned television explained to the country’s residents how to stock their bunkers with water and basic foodstuffs in case a war breaks out.

Warning that the potential conflict between the two superpowers would be “catastrophic,” an anchor for Russia’s Vesti 24 showed off shelves of food, recommending that people buy salt, oatmeal and other products that can last a long time on the shelves if they plan to hide in a bunker. Powdered milk lasts five years, while sugar and rice can last up to eight years, the newscaster explained before showing videos of pasta cooking in a bomb shelter.

The beginning of the program had a mocking tone about war fears, as pictures of nuclear explosions played in the background. A newscaster said the “real panic isn’t here but across the ocean,” suggesting that Americans are terrified of a war with Russia.

Comment: 

Time to call out Pope Francis’s disgraceful failure to consecrate Russia as detailed in the Fatima apparitions.  Catholic Truth is urging all our bloggers and readers/visitors to this site to use the means of communication available to contact the Pope today to urge him to obey Our Lady’s exhortation to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart.  Below, a template letter for those who would appreciate some help in penning their email or letter.  To contact Pope Francis either email the Vatican’s press office at av@pccs.va [Ed: this doesn’t work  – sorry]  or  write to him via the postal service, as follows:  His Holiness, Pope Francis PP. 00120 Via del Pellegrino. Citta del Vaticano.

Template letter

Your Holiness (or Dear Pope Francis),

In light of the increasingly grave geo-political situation, where the possibility of imminent nuclear war is currently the subject of much open commentary in the secular news outlets, I respectfully write to request that you set out the means by which the Bishops of the world will join with you in consecrating Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as Our Lady requested through the Fatima seer, Sister Lucia.  As you will know, following the initial apparitions in 1917,  Our Lady reappeared to Sister Lucy on June 13, 1929 at Tuy, Spain, when in a great and sublime vision representing the Blessed Trinity, she announced that “the moment has come for God to ask the Holy Father to make, in union with all the bishops of the world, the Consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart. By this means, He promises to save Russia.”  Our Lady promised that this Consecration of Russia would result in a period of world peace 

Clearly, the previous consecrations of the world by your predecessors have not satisfied God’s plan of salvation.   Far from enjoying world peace, we are increasingly threatened by the danger of nuclear war.  God wishes Russia – the first nation on earth to publicly disown the very existence of God and to embrace atheistic communism – to be consecrated, by name, to His Blessed Mother, and if we are to avert the danger of all-out nuclear war, this Consecration must be fulfilled. 

I urge you, therefore, Holy Father, to make the necessary practical arrangements to pray this Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in union with the world’s bishops, as a matter of the utmost urgency.   You alone, out of all the prominent religious and political leaders in the world today, hold the key to world peace in your hands, by virtue of your unique office.    Yours etc.

Finally…

If enough letters/emails are received at the Vatican, it just might make a difference. Certainly, in supernatural terms, it will make a difference because God is never outdone in generosity and He will reward our efforts with grace, that’s for sure. So,  feel free to use, amend or discard the above – but please DO write: we cannot simply lament the Pope’s neglect – we must make sure that we are not guilty of neglect of duty ourselves, and we do have a duty to do everything in our power, by prayer and all the practical means at our disposal, to remind him of the importance of the request from Heaven to consecrate Russia to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart.  Over to you! 

Immaculate Heart of Mary
pray for us!

Russia Increasingly Threatening – Pope Francis: Consecrate Russia NOW!

Comment:

I watched the entire Prime Minister’s Statement on Live Parliamentary TV this afternoon, and noted, with much interest, the alarm from MPs on all sides about the perception of growing aggression from the Russian State, as they questioned Theresa May after her formal Statement.  

One of the more famous Catholic MPs – Jacob Rees-Mogg – was notable by his absence.  I got to thinking, though, that even if  he had been present in the Commons, he is unlikely to have asked the Prime Minister, using the formal style of the House,  if “she agrees with me that Pope Francis should be approached with a request to consecrate Russia in accordance with the Fatima Message, since all other means of ending the threat to world peace from Russia seem to have failed…”  

There was representation  on the matter in the EU in 2012 – click here – and it would be wonderful if some insightful Catholic MP were to raise the matter in the UK Parliament – but I’m not holding my breath.  

Is the current incident, the attempted murder of a former Russian spy and his daughter, a sign that the geo-political crisis is worsening – or is it a storm in the proverbial teacup?
